uberTaxi hailing service Uber has launched in Thika, its 3rd Kenyan town after Nairobi and Mombasa. Uber launched in January last year.

It was an instant hit especially with Nairobi’s expatriate community and tech savvy Kenyans.

A few months later, they introduced cash payments and it exploded, and last month it announced having reached 1 million rides milestone. It has over 1000 drivers in Kenya.

It launched in Mombasa in March this year, promising to eventually cover the entire country. Yesterday, they announced that they are now in Thika.
